SOME THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

1. One saggy boob said to the other saggy boob: "If we don't get some support soon, people will think we're nuts."

2. There is no such thing as a perfect NYE plan. Is New Year's Eve ever as good as one thinks it is going to be? Isn't it anti-climactic by design?

3. I might be reading the worst book I've ever read. In my life. Much respect to Mr. Lawrence Norfolk for completing The Tome Also Known As Lempriere's Dictionary... But I've been struggling with it (literally and figuratively) for 3 days and I'm still on page 30. The Spectator says it is "brilliantly inventive and hugely enjoyable" - while I can't deny the huge bit, I'm unconvinced as to the rest. I read the last 7 pages of flowery prose in a state of utter confusion, until I realized they were describing how the protagonist got fitted with glasses. If anyone out there has read this novel and has an opinion (ie. whether or not I should keep plugging away at it), please
e-mail me.

4. Next project: Children's book with a Christmas theme. Considering how much time and energy I've spent on Christmas this year, I really should try to cash in on it somehow. Before you start sending me hate mail about the commercialization of Christmas, please see
how seriously I take this holiday.


5. Trends are weird. I don't just mean fashion. I mean trends in general and blog readership stats in particular. I was pleasantly surprised with my readership numbers last week, but today numbers dropped to seven. It doesn't seem related to the day of the week (ie. most readers accessing from the office etc.). It seems completely random. Akin to when we were in school, and all the teachers would decide to give sh*tloads of homework on the same day. Recently, I read The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make A Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell. I didn't really dig the book. The title was more interesting than the thousands of words between the front and back covers. Anyway, I did find myself remembering portions of the book in light of today's Site Meter numbers. Any theories?
E-mail me.

6. AOL dialup is ruining my life. Hopefully I'll be able to get broadband where I am right now. That means less text and more pictures on my blog.

7. I've got some great friends. I'm not saying this only because I got some very unexpected Christmas cards and presents, but I do love surprises. Shout-outs to Dawn (being good and haven't opened it yet!), Charlotte (thanks for the card and the boob joke!), Mizuki (totally unexpected!), and Nikita (I need your address as well!). And y'alls who are interested enough to check out my blog, including the very fabulous Kerry W., who I haven't seen since 1999! I'm stupid for ever feeling lonely.

8. My dying wish. I hope I lead a happy and healthy life until I'm 92 and die in my sleep, in clean sheets and clean pajamas, in a clean house. I can't think of a better way to go. I'm not depressed or anything. I'm just saying is all.

I have read the Tipping point and what I liked about it the most was that you would always think it was the most obvious thing that lead to the 'Tipping' but it never was, most times it was hugely bizzare and more that often 1 person or a small group that lead to the tipping. I think about that book alot.
Have a great one... Cha
PS I want a die at 80 in some sweaty bed in a nasty hotel with some sweaty young man coming and going at the same time.... hahaha
